Northern Lights with Joseph Swensen
April 18th 2024 at 14:00 – 15:15
Look north for luminous music from Orkney, Denmark and Finland, brought together by SCO Conductor Emeritus Joseph Swensen.
Maxwell Davies imagined the hard-fought arrival of an Orcadian spring in one of his final works, written in 2013 for the SCO, while Sibelius offers an atmospheric portrait of the underworld of Finnish mythology, whose guardian swan is sung by SCO cor anglais player Katherine Bryer.
SCO Principal Flute André Cebrián is the soloist in Neilsen’s brilliant Concerto, while Swensen offers his own rich orchestral reimagining of the same composer’s youthful First String Quartet.
